About Katie

I have a background in Ecology, Botany, Environmental Science, Math, Literature, and Writing. I absolutely love the natural sciences and I don't want students to feel stressed or become angered over these subjects; they can be mastered!

Currently, I lead 5th graders on outdoor field trips at a Non-Profit in Vancouver, Washington. The main topics discussed are Decomposition, Stream Ecosystems, and Macro-invertebrates. Also, I have taught Science and Art with the SUN program for Portland Public Schools.

I am very detail oriented and believe there is more than one approach to a problem. I am patient, dedicated, and persistent!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
